LOVA International Summer School 2012
“Learning by Doing” - Anthropology, Gender & Ethnographic Fieldwork
9 – 13 July 2012, Amsterdam
The LOVA International Summer School 2012 strives to teach and train you in ethnographic research methods. We bring students and life–long learners in touch with new anthropological perspectives on gender studies and a network of gender-scholars. You will enjoy engaged schooling within the parameters of feminist anthropology and gender studies. The focus in 2012 is on fieldwork. Topics include technology & gender, beauty & body, romantic love in Europe, observing hidden populations such as sex-workers and sexual citizenship in Amsterdam, violence & masculinity in Latin America and more. Field excursions in Amsterdam combined with lectures and workshops make our summer school a unique academic learning experience. Our tutors are experienced university teachers and young trained anthropologists.
Requirements are a MA in social sciences, anthropology, or a related field. If you are still in the process of pursuing your MA, please contact us. Proficient level of academic English is needed. Life long learners and professionals with an interest in anthropology, gender and ethnographic fieldwork are very welcome.
